People kept telling me this show was awesome, and at first I did not believe them. But after watching the first few episodes, I now see the appeal! This is truly Nickelodeon's best show. Why this lasted so short, I will never understand. Here are the reasons I find it so awesome.
The characters/basic concept: Only on rare occasions have I seen a show concept as Inspired as this one. The main character Zim, a short alien (based on a royalty system based on who is the tallest) is sent by his leaders, the Almighty Tallest, Red and Purple (who despise Zim and want him to die), to go to The End of the known universe so he does not mess up Operation Impending Doom 2. That alone was enough to gain my attention. When I met Dib, his nemesis, and Dib's sister Gaz, I knew I was in for a world of hilarity. And Boy was I right. Dib's over the top ways to stop Zim, Gaz's dark attitude, and Zim's outlandish ways to take over the Earth and GIR (I had to mention him as the show's main humor)'s irreverence, I always busted my gut watching this show. It is one of the hundreds of shows where every episode is basically the same, but this show does it so beautifully.
The animation: The animation is great, with flowing animation, perfect syncing, and interesting designs on the characters, this is some of the finest animation I have seen for Nickelodeon.
Voices: Top Notch acting makes the over the top, irreverent, and outlandish writing believable.
Cancellation: One word: WHY?
I haven't watched a lot of this show, but from what I have watched, it is awesome! And it leaves me to say (or paraphrase, IDK), "All hail Lord Vasquez!"
My Grade: A+
To be honest, I never watched the show when it was on. I didn't even know this show existed till' 2007. So when I heard how people say it was amazing, I decided to give it a shot. And boy, am I glad I did.
The show is about an alien named Zim, hated by his planet for practicing invading on his own planet. So the rulers, known as the Tallest decide to give him a mission to invade a planet they haven't heard from, so he'll be gone forever. However, Zim happens to land on Earth, and tries to invade the planet, by looking like an average kid with human eyes. However, he still has green skin, is allergic to water, and can't eat human food, but no one thinks Zim is an alien; except for two kids named Dib and Gaz. Dib is addicted to the paranormal and wants to stop Zim invading Earth, while Gaz knows Zim is terrible at invading planets, so isn't afraid or concerned at all. The ironic thing is that Zim is horrible at invading planets, and Dib is horrible at protecting his planet.
Now there is a robot named GIR who was made out of an old robot and some trash, and is the funniest and stupidest character ever. He says extremely random things in a cute voice. He is so my favorite character in anything.
Overall, even though I've only seen 6 episodes so far, I love this show. 10 out of 10!
I love this cartoon when I was a little kid and I still love this cartoon. I would love to watch the re-runs of this brilliant, awesome, and funny cartoon on Nicktoons Network. Why did this awesome cartoon have to only last 2 seasons? This cartoon is so freakin' good and just plain hilarious all the way. ZIM wants to plan world domination but ends up failing. We also have GIR who is a tiny silly robot who also disguises as a green dog. All of the characters in this cartoon are very likable and absolutely hilarious pretty much. How often do we see a brilliant cartoon that deals with an alien wanting to plan world domination? Not too often which is why I love this cartoon. The writers were definitely creative making this cartoon and they kept it fresh, hilarious, original, and everything else that I love to watch in a cartoon. Most of the storylines in this cartoon are very enjoyable and just manage to make me laugh very hard. Man, I can't believe that this cartoon lasted so short. I was pretty disappointed when it got canceled as a little kids. Children will love all of the wackiness that happens in Invader ZIM as well. I love the adventures, action, and the whole dialogue of each episode that happens in this cartoon. Overall, "Invader ZIM" is a cartoon that should have lasted longer than 2 seasons and truly is an amazing cartoon with awesome humor. 10/10
I saw my first Invader ZIM episode when I was like, what, four? Or was it five? Ah, nevermind. The point is, I was young when I saw it. Guess what episode I saw? Yep. Dark Harvest. Talk about a good first impression! Seriousley, though, I fell in love five minutes into the episode.
Fast forward about eight years. I was watching T.V. one night in October, and I was bored. While I was scrolling through the T.V. listings, I stumbled upon a show called "Invader ZIM", so I had to check it out. Then...it hit me: it must be that wierd show that I only saw once! To make a long story short; It was. I have been in love with Dib ever since.
Jhonen's characters are fun, unique, and a tad bit disturbing. One of the bestT.V. shows ever to air on television. Jhonen Vasquez is an absolute evil genius! This show recieves my stamp of approval!
